How to Choose Safe Adult Video Downloads
Downloading adult videos over the Internet is a cost-effective way of indulging in their pleasures. What can you not do online in this day and age, after all? But even with all the convenience that adult video downloads bring, there remains that risk of malware. What can we do? Fortunately, we can minimize the possibility of our computer getting infected just by being a responsible Internet consumer.
First and foremost, take note that download is different from streaming. If you’re streaming your adult video, that means you are watching it on the website of the provider itself, and in real time. Downloading is when you actually get the video file and save it in your computer. Either way, here are nifty ways to keep safe while enjoying adult videos from the Internet:
1. Examine the source website.
This may sound too shallow, but downloading from a very basic-looking site could mean a higher chance that a virus is hidden somewhere, compared to a site that looks like a product of dedicated web designers’ work.
2. Know your video download source.
This part is usually common sense. If you’re getting your file from a popular company, such as Amazon or Windows, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll get virus. If you’re considering a site that is practically unknown, then you have to raise your defenses. Check if other people have downloaded the file. Very importantly, go over the comments. Consider all the clues.
3. Look at the file size.
If it’s too small, then it can’t be the adult video you’re looking for. It could be junk, or yes, a little destructive chunk of virus.
4. Keep your eyes peeled for file extensions like .exe, .bat, .pif, etc.
If you download and click a file with any of these, you could be a whole wave of malware-induced malfunctions the moment you click it. To be absolutely safe, don’t proceed unless you have run your video file in a malware checker.
File Sharing Safety Tips
If you use file-sharing software, choose safe software and use it properly. Install a file-sharing application only after you have run it under anti-malware software. If you have the money, buy a premium subscription to substantially lower your risks of malware infection. Don’t download the software unless from the manufacturer’s website, or at least from the website of an authorized reseller.
Note that adult videos have become immensely more popular over the last ten years, owing to the advantages offered by technology. While you can find a lot of safe providers out there, you cannot complete rule out the possibility of ending up with a cowboy. So before you click that button to download or share adult videos, remember these pointers.
